Overcome the past and any other obstacles that stand in the way of the future God has planned for you.

Three years after the accident that almost claimed her life, Emma Esh has recovered physically but has no memory of the year before the accident. When she moves to a new community to help her sister Lydia and brother-in-law, Caleb, prepare for the birth of twins, she falls for their neighbor Samuel.

But the twins’ premature birth, a visit from the Englischer Emma once dated, and the sudden return of her memory threaten Emma’s romance. After the secrets of her past are revealed, will love be able to overcome all obstacles?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelling read Book Two in the Sisters and Friends series. It reads wonderfully well as a standalone though. And it's pretty unique because the story will have a different kind of impact depending on whether you have read the first book, Change of Heart. That's because Emma has no memory of the months before and immediately after the accident that nearly killed her. So, if you haven't read the first book, you're as clueless as Emma and get to uncover buried secrets right along with her. But, if you have read the first book, you know exactly what happened to Emma and that makes for a very interesting reading perspective since you know more about the main character than she does! Very cool. Emma is struggling to put her life back together but she's missing some key pieces. While she has the support of her family, she knows they are keeping secrets from her and they treat her as if she's sure to disappoint them. So it's a relief to move to a different community where no one knows her past -- just like her! Even though Lydia can be a bit of an overbearing older sister. (There were times I wanted to shake some sense into her, but I refrained because of her delicate condition.) Though next door neighbour Samuel intrigues Emma, he makes her nervous too. They have a great first meet scene involving a rambunctious Irish Setter that endeared me to Samuel immediately. :-) A complicated 'non-courtship' ensues as both hero and heroine grapple with letting go of the past in order to reach out towards a future together. There's plenty of drama -- breath-snatching scenes that left me gobsmacked -- tender ones that left me weak in the knees. And twisty plot turns that kept me reading long after lights out. An excellent addition to the Sisters and Friends series. I can't wait for Book Three's release!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sam's Chests Annie has her chest from Sam, carved with the recipe she uses for making sponge cakes, how sweet and personal for her, and what a gift from Sam, who has turned his grief into blessings for others. The power of our minds to help protect us, and that is exactly what Emma is experiencing, will she ever be able to remember the accident that changed her life. I’ve had panic attacks, but never to the extent this poor girl has, and protection her family tries to surround her with, and yet you wonder if they are to protecting. Can’t imagine the fear of the unknown she is experiencing, and I had to chuckle at what she did to her neighbor Sam. Will Emma ever remember, and if so, what was so terrible that happened to her, we are going to find out, and surprise after surprise is dropped. Then we wonder what is going to happen her to this poor young woman, will she stay with her sister, and will she be accepted by this Amish Community, will there be forgiveness? This one is a page-turner as you want to chip away what caused all of Emma’s problems, and piece-by-piece the answers appear, and there are surprises that I didn’t see coming. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Charisma House and was not required to give a positive review.
